I was eating a lot of sugar, so I decided to cut out the junk.
I didn’t have to look for it, and I never did.
I’m thankful to be alive to share this story with you.
But there’s one more important thing that I wish I’d known sooner: the plastic bags were an issue that could affect me for the rest of my life.
I grew up in a house with plastic bags.
I was never the type of kid who would throw away anything.
In fact, I never even threw away the trash at the house.
My mom was always like, “It’s okay, I’m going to put it in the trash” and then the next day I would go to the front door and find all my garbage in the front of the house and stuff it all up.
The bags were always in the garbage can, and when I went out, I was the last person to leave.
I would just walk away.
My dad was always the last one to leave the house with the bags, so when he did leave, he would just go into the garage, and we’d just go to work.
My sisters were like, what are you doing?
And my mom always was like, well, I’ll get out of here.
I mean, I didn.
I wasn’t the type.
When I was younger, I used to use a lot more than I should have.
And I think it’s because I wasn’nt being conscientious about it.
So I started cutting out plastic bags because it made me feel better about it, but I didn’t stop being a junkie.
The plastic bags, the plastic water bottles, all those things that are used all the time, they’re going to end up in the landfill.
It’s not a sustainable thing.
So I was just throwing it away because I felt like it was a waste.
I felt bad, but when I started getting older, I realized it was actually good for me.
I think that was probably the first time that I felt really good about myself, and that made me realize that I’m not that bad.
And then when I was about 25, I started doing the dishes.
I had a lot on the dinner table, so the kitchen was always empty.
I thought, I don’t want to have to do dishes anymore.
I wanted to be able to be at home and eat, and not be eating in the kitchen.
And so I started chopping wood and stuff.
So one day, I saw a video of a man chopping wood.
He was chopping wood all night, and he was sitting at the dinner counter with a plate of wood and he had this bag in front of him.
I said, what is that?
And he said, it’s a plastic bag.
He’s eating wood.
I started to take pictures of the bag and I’m like, oh my god.
It looks like a garbage bag.
And the next morning, I had all these pictures and I had to do an interview about it and I was like okay, what did you think about that?
That’s when I realized that I actually like doing stuff.
I liked being able to make things.
And now I’m able to cook for myself and be creative.
At the beginning, I wasn, like, I like chopping wood, but it’s just not something I was interested in doing anymore.
But I realized later on, I actually enjoyed doing it.
I used it as a tool to cook and I used the plastic as a kind of storage device.
I still use it as my tool, but now I like making things.
There are still some things I hate doing, like throwing away a bag, but most of my trash is recycled plastic.
I don’ see a lot left in the landfills, so there’s still a lot that I can do.
I also used to be really bad at organizing my own stuff.
It was really hard to sort my own trash, because I’d throw everything out the front.
Now I just sort things by color, by location, and then I can actually do that.
But still, there are some things that I do that I don\’t really like doing, and they’re just like, yeah, you did it.
And that makes me feel really good.
That made me want to try things.
I guess that’s why I love the food industry.
You know, I love food.
And it’s like a lot.
You have to be crazy to do it, you know.
So the food companies make us feel good, and at the same time, we have to have a good time.
When I was in high school, I went to the university.
I majored in English and then went to university in New York.
I went through four different schools.
I got into the arts program at Columbia, I got in the business program at NYU, I majoured in the history and international relations at NYU
